Description

Psychedelics, Music and Meaning: A full day of talks exploring breakthrough approaches to psychotherapy.

Can psychotherapy help you uncover a sense of purpose and meaning in life?

What physiological effects does music have on the human mind?

How is psychedelic-psychotherapy being used to ‘reset’ the brains of those suffering with treatment-resistant depression?

These are just some of the topics the speakers will discuss at ‘A Day on Psychotherapy’ at The Weekend University. It’ll be a full day of talks exploring the rapidly growing evidence-base for these groundbreaking forms of therapy.

You’ll learn:

  • Meaning Centred-Psychotherapy: How this exciting form of therapy can help you uncover a sense of meaning and purpose in life, and overcome psychological problems
  • Music Therapy: The amazing science of how music affects the brain and how it can be used to treat anxiety, depression and dementia
  • Psychedelic Psychotherapy: How these ancient medicines are safely being used alongside psychotherapy to 'reset' the brains of those suffering with treatment-resistant depression

You’ll learn how these insights can improve your own quality of life, but also your ability to help others too.
